TOWN OF NEWBURGH – Construction continues on the 90,000 square foot Resorts World Hudson Valley casino in the Newburgh Mall on Route 300 in the Town of Newburgh.
The facility will be geared toward a local and regional clientele, Meghan Taylor, the company’s vice president for government affairs, told Mid-Hudson News.
“It’s quick and easy to get to off of the infrastructure and roadways we have right outside of our doors, as opposed to the Resorts World Catskills where it is a luxury weekend getaway,” she said. “We do not have a hotel here. We don’t have restaurants in the facility here at Resorts World Hudson Valley, but we hope that with making that key decision, we’re going to be a catalyst to drive redevelopment here at the mall.”
The new facility is expected to employ 250 local people. Two hundred construction workers are busily installing the video slot machines and table games and putting the finishing touches on the décor.
A local benefit of the facility will be an annual $3 million local shot in the arm to the Town of Newburgh.
